    I'd have to agree with devinzz1, I have over 85K on mine and it's silent at idle. I've read a write up or two on here on rebuilding them yourself, but not sure I'd be willing to tackle it. Depends on if you have the $$ to send it off for a rebuild/replacement. How many miles on it?

    It's been like that ever since I got the supercharger (used) you think it's just the rear bearings? Or the rotor hitting the housing ?

    I just figured you could use the belt.....keep it if it's good. I've never rebuilt mine because it's still relatively new. Mine is a second gen s/c. Nevertheless, with all the research I've done the noise I hear yours making it sounds like the coupler.

    yea thats what was wrong with mine and juan can also be right bc when i had mine apart i changed out that coupler also. and if its able to run still check all the bolts make sure you have them all tight if you miss one the gasket can make a crazy noise like that also....

    The sealed bearings you see in the kit are what you need.

    and when you take it apart you'll see scratches in the rotor to assure you its the rear bearings
